The "experience" concept simulates that a player has managed to learn things which improve his performance aside from the main skills.
The players get their experience through playing league matches, national cup matches, national team matches, and friendlies (national friendlies give the players about half the experience an international friendly does).
League matches give a slightly random amount of experience, so you may see some short-term variation in how fast a player's experience increases. This variation is random and not based on the division the game is played in.
Cup matches give about double the amount of experience compared to league games.
As a player becomes more experienced he will play better in games. Also note the following Special events
- Experienced wingers and forwards can score using their experience.
- Inexperienced defenders and inner midfielders can give their opponents an extra chance.
- Experience is particularly important for the Team captain
- Very important or dramatic matches might mean that inexperienced players loose their grip on the game. This gets worse the more they lack experience. Only the team with the lowest amount of experience will be subject to this during a match.
